Year in Review: Stocking Stuffers

I had so much fun doing the "stocking stuffer" post last year that I thought I'd give it a second go round. How happy would I be Christmas morning with these particular goodies in my stocking? I would burst.

Objects / Gadgets I Most Covet from 2006 Movies
  • tarot deck all fancy like in Scoop. Only without the serial killer connection. Just the cards, thanks. They're fun at parties.
  • handmade crafts made especially for me by Gael Garcia Bernal. He had such a way with the inanimate in The Science of Sleep and handmade gifts are endearing.
  • a blood diamond --not that I wanna contribute to destroying the lives of noble Africans but they're apparently priceless and I live in Manhattan. That don't come cheap.
  • Nigel's phone # Hey, if he'll just hand out a wardrobe worth of designer clothes to the 'smart, fat girl' in The Devil Wears Prada, surely, he can hook me up. I so need a makeover.
  • A bag of gold stars for my journal writing. OK, I don't really keep one anymore. This blog is enough. But if I did it wouldn't be as juicy or deranged as Judi Dench's in Notes on a Scandal unless I had some way to turn the good times creepy...with visual aids.
  • keys to a friend's empty restaurant It sure came in handy in Volver. Empty restaurants are handy for attracting local film crews and throwing big parties. Both of which sound like good ideas to me. [spoiler] Plus nothing beats an empty freezer. You can use it for food storage or to, well, you know --oh, like you've never wanted to hide a body. Don't judge.
  • tiny blue swimsuit --preferrably the one on Daniel Craig in Casino Royale. And preferrably removed from his body and placed in my stocking by the man himself. In my presence. Not all gifts should be wrapped.

    please and thanks
What do you want in your stocking?

A dance lesson from Rosario Dawson in "Clerks II," Jack Sparrow's wardrobe from "Pirates of the Caribbean 2," that sweet jukebox from "V for Vendetta," and the enormous yacht from "Superman Returns." I think I can make all of those things work together...

More great movies for 2007! Especially horror films and musicals.

I agree with you about Craig´s swimsuit... How come he didn´t act [i]that way[i] before...

Craig + Those Blue Trunks = Delicious
Craig - Those Blue Trunks = *explodes*

From 2006 I want, as Nat said, a makeover from Nigel. I want a night of hard drinking with Jude (Deborra-Lee Furness) from Jindabyne. A trip down Route 66 with the cast of Cars. Something big bright and yellow like in Little Miss Sunshine and some cakes from the Versaillais (sp?)

Oh, and a romp with Hugh Jackman and Christian Bale on the set of a Prestige sequel.

can I commit heresy by saying I thought Volver was only okay?

What was the most impressive as well as the worst film of 2010 in your oppinion? In my opinion it would have to be:

Very best: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part One

Worst: A Nightmare on Elm Street

With thanks :) <3
